The Story of Zirit-Life
ZIRIT-LIFE® was founded by Tricia "Nurse Zirit" Schuster. Tricia is a mindfulness coach, registered nurse, yoga instructor, author, and plant medicine advocate. She is creator of THE ZOCK (tennis ball in a tube sock used as a meditation tool on the GB20 acupressure points), THE ZIRIT SERIES (a 3-book collection launching soon), and HUMANS NOT ANONYMOUS (6 steps to decrease suffering in all humans). She has worked with various groups and organizations – including schools, attorneys, bank executives, and hospital staff – helping them to implement daily mindfulness meditation and yoga practices. She's been a registered nurse with the Florida Board of Nursing since 1996; specializing in hospice and palliative care. Throughout her employment at Tampa General Hospital she developed multiple hospital-wide programs including the Bereavement Program (2003), the Palliative Care Consultation Team (2005), and the Meaningful Conversations: Advance Care Planning Program (2016). She's been a mindfulness practitioner since 1999 and a registered yoga instructor since 2012. Tricia has done extensive study in the fields of mindfulness, meditation, yoga, and plant/energy medicine. Her teachings are wise and insightful - as well as playful and light. Her mantra for life is "NOT PERFECT, JUST PRESENT!". Mindfulness coaching sessions are available via phone from anywhere in the world. No experience is necessary. Call 813.391.PING for more info.
(Just a little backstory: On the night of March 2nd, 2011 - Dr. Seuss' birthday coincidentally or not - she was awakened by a cobalt-blue, energetic entity channeling through the back of her neck with the following message; "Tricia, you're a zirit - a zany+spirit - and you do what feels right in the present moment. You're here to help create world peace through inner peace one mindful moment at a time." Needless to say, it's been channeling through her ever since!)
zirit (ZIR-it): n. a zany spirit who is eternally present
